"It was great," said Robinson. "I saw the weight room, the academic center and the apartments. I saw everything that I wanted to see.

"The game was way different than the game I saw at Miami," said Robinson. "The fans were more crazy and fun. I liked them. The game itself was cool too. It seemed like LSU struggled a little bit in the first half, but then they put Louisiana Tech away for good in the second half."'s #3 ranked linebacker also had the chance to sit down with LSU Head Coach Les Miles as well as an opportunity to chat with some of the players.

"Coach Miles is a cool guy," said Robinson. "We had a good talk. He said he was going to come down to Florida to see me and to try to make this thing work out. It made me feel good.

"I also spoke to Ali Highsmith," Robinson stated. "He was a cool dude too. He was telling me how LSU has a good program and how it was a nice place to live with a good environment. It seemed like a great place to me too."

Did Robinson's trip to Death Valley change anything with his commitment to Miami?

"Miami still has my verbal commitment, but at the same time it is still open until signing day. This trip will make me think about my decision a little more. It is hard for me to compare LSU to other teams because I still have to take my other official visits. I want to go to Florida and to Miami. I've been to a Miami game already, but it wasn't for an official visit.

"Once I've made my trips and if my decision has changed away from Miami I will make it known right away if possible. Right now though, I will focus on my team. We won our district and we made it to the playoffs. We will be playing Sunset High School this weekend and I think we have a really good shot at beating them."

Note: One of the top pass rushers in the entire state, Robinson finished his junior season with 19 sacks. He has big time speed and quickness coming off the edge and some schools will likely recruit him as a linebacker.
